Statistics never lie

Statistics never lie.

 The indecisive coconut just hung. 
He waited and waited, 
swayed a little 
in the tropical breeze 
but just hung. 
A big fat tourist 
in loud Hawaiian shorts 
strolled by. 
The indecisive coconut decided. 
He dropped... 
and missed. 

It split in two 
on the hard stony ground. 

The coconut tree glanced down, 
sighed, 
and thought, 
no point crying over spilt milk. 
There will be other tourists. 
After all, 
one hundred and fiffty 
is a big number. 
Statistics never lie.
